What is an internist?

Internists, also known as doctors of internal medicine or as internal medicine physicians, are medical specialists who apply their knowledge and clinical expertise to diagnose, treat, and compassionately care for the medical needs adults.

At least 3 of their 7+ years of medical school and postgraduate training are focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases that affect adults. Sometimes internists are referred to as the "doctor's doctor" since they are frequently consulted by other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems.

Although internists are primary care physicians, they are not family physicians, family practitioners, or general practitioners whose training is not solely concentrated on adults and may include surgery, obstetrics and pediatrics.
